Healing Oregon City
It's important that the next mayor approaches issues facing this city with nuance, understanding, and respect for all sides on the issues. Divisiveness will only further divide us. This does not mean arbitrarily weighing both sides of every argument as equal. But it does mean that most opinions deserve respect; listening and empathy are better than hate and dismissal at changing minds.
An effective COVID-19 response is one that balances the health and safety of our population with our small businesses' finances and our younger generation's mental health. An empathetic response to the Black Lives Matter protests is one that listens to their complaints and looks out for and eradicates racism in the police system while also recognizing that saying "all cops are bad" only dismisses how much most of the police force cares about our community. And an economic response to job losses and the financial struggles of Americans right now is one that provides for our people in the time of a pandemic but not so much that the workforce stagnates.
These are the types of measured, nuanced, and open-minded responses that Oregon City deserves.
